  1. Are you sure it stopped because of overheating Andrew? That wine bottle next to it looks a bit empty. Put a cameraman in a fridge with wine bottle, you know! With artificial intelligence in cameras these days...
  2. Here's an idea. Using a beam primary splitter to three vertically stacked frames idea above, could a superior picture to modern film. This, even without customising the chemical formulation of each primary sub frame in the frame. Film is heavily formularised in layers with HDR tricks. I imagine film production buffs in big studios might like to spend the extra film in order to produce a feature that matches any current cinema popular camera plus some more?
  3. How come they.dudnt do it in 16k 120fps, or 32k? People in the know, will know what I'm hinting at. It's easy to upscale by making a fine delimitation point around a pool of visual information (boundaries, including hard edges but also soft edges in toning movement). You apply the same approximation of boundaries to faster frame rates to produce frames inbetween and in the existing ones This allows you to go to whatever K resolution and frame rate, but lacks the missing detail. However, it's hard to use regular AI well. They waste huge amounts of energy for more advanced routines, whic
  4. Lol. It almost looks rolling shutter on that train. How they decide the color? That is one of the difficult things in the industry. I was looking at doing a technique to extract original colors in the 80's or 90's, but the information needed wouldn't survive the post process. But the his AI thing is a bit garbage. There are deterministic ways of restoring film for decades, and I looked at doing so in the 1990's/maybe 1980's. If only they had a prism splitter to put little primary colored images of film in between the sprocket holes that would help colorisation and could have been used a
  5. Happy new year. Pretty soon you will be able to print large format 30cm+, sensors. Imagine what youtubers would do with that. Certainly would give the best YouTube talking head videos. ?
  6. No 8k? Look at mode 8C on the chart. It is an extra wide 9.576k mode at 30fps, which you can extract a wide format 8k out of. In sensors they can use the option to window out the resolution you want at higher frame rates. However, a manufacturer could lock out this function and just give set modes. Now, can we have something on Red? Like how there patent survives? I think there might a patent lawyer around here who could access and write it. Hey Video Hummus. New Sigma Foveon camera is coming. Anyway, what is the point of the Sony, without 8k, 12 b
  7. Vested interests change Wikipedia pages, and officially so too. Even pointing out wrongs you get stone walled. Things are written in medical pages from the standpoint of certain people aswell, reinforcing certain conspiratorial conservative behaviours. The BBC are very left wing biased. If you are left wing they look neutral, but it has gotten so bad that right wing people loose sight of the non biased things, seeing balanced neutral reporting as even biased. What's happening in, America, is an indication of how broken it is, particularly the right. Bernie Sanders looks a credible op
  8. Thanks Emanuel. Open up one with a title "Patent! Patent! Patent!". But just put .. in the main body, and see how fast one gets banned for life. They have done various things (but maybe imports) but just don't follow through a lot. A cheap fixed cinema camera I was talking to them about, wasn't so innovative, but new came out. The redray codec, the laser projector, world's most complex camera asic (more record). Hydrogen, bought in display.
  9. I think it read (haven't glanced it in a whe) that it covers different CFA patterns. That thee was some specific color manipulation for the compression, which should be the start of the only thing protectable in that way. Meaning that only the unique, new, unobvious process applied that way should be patentable. Everything is is dross. Adding obvious stuff like resolution and compression ratio is unpatentable. In general, trying to force unpatentable obvious sections, I would expect to be a nonunique process manipulation. No, it's ok, I dig actual work, I'm not a jealous person wh
  10. Different jurisdictions rejecting stuff, based on evidence, is evidence! They should go out and give it a try, and find all markets where something was rejected, or was never accepted.
  11. It's worse, applying jpeg2000 to Bayer is obvious and at video rates rediculously obvious. Plus we discuss using jpeg2000 for Bayer at video rates looking to the higher than 2k resolution era publicly before Red patent or even existence I think, so that in itself would make it unpatentable, as prior public knowledge. Stuff, I'm the one that suggested to them 4k, do I get to patent everything 4k, of course not! They only get to patent one particular type of new Bayer compression algorithm and the unique, new unobvious differences in it. That's how it is suppose to work.
  12. You have to be careful in how you state things, in business, not to sound differently from what you intend. I'm not saying whatever was intended here. People could reinterpret things as they like, even potentially misinterpret and ask about the definition of collusion. You see, it's very difficult in business and you have to be careful in how things are stated. So, has there ever been a challenge to this patent that gets to actual re-examination of the terms and context we are interested in. There is no real victory without that happening on all contexts of relevant objections. H
  13. I am talking about others. I'm an inventor, and we could develop a wireless connector that hovers in the port magnetically but does not touch the device. I know how it can be done and how to no physically keep it in the port. Considering the nature of the patents relation to prior art it would be a stretch on a stretch to not allow it. I've been considering designs for a camera case for a phone years ago to contact Google about, and it just occurred to me I could use it for wireless recording. But yeah, I think I can totally get around these requirements using my tech propsal fro
  14. Yeah, been looking at these to use as a little camera, but only 5mp and who knows what sensor. :). Bought another phone instead.
  15. Lol, I remember those times. Somebody published a nighttime comparison shot between the scarlet fixed and a Canon, and it was OVER they lingered on and then claimed their lens wasn't good enough, and something about not soocer mums, and cancelled the fixed at the last moment and substituted a much more expensive scarlet epic like. Boo! I was waiting to buy that thing for years. Everytime I wait to but something of theirs, they cancel it, every ..... Time. What is up? Killing it, literary.
  16. Yep. What they can do is challenge the patent in other pragmatic jurisdictions. If there is no valid patent in a market, or Europe or Asia, others can sell cameras there, and it is evidence there is question in order to look at it. Ok, Kinefinity licensed cineform raw early on. Did they cross into this patent earlier?
  17. Joema, thank you. This is the problem, instead of the claims covering a specific implementation, they can cover everybody else's obvious workmanship. If it was up to me, there would be jail for certain overreach in patents for everybody, and compensation. It's ugly. I'm really sick of the patent system producing outcomes that restrict competition. Now, let's look at it, they use obvious terms like resolution and frame rate to define their patent, because it's obvious it is based on prior art as far as compressing Bayer images, so it is obvious that it is obvious. The judges should h
  18. I was joking around. But yeah, like Lars was saying, two read out modes would help. It looks like a little thin pocket Red Epic that way. But then you have to rotate the screen.
  19. Why don't they do a rotating sensor so you can use it vertically without unnusual rolling shutter issues?
  20. Was that shot on a 4 bit Cinema camera? We need more 4 bit Cinema cameras. BM please give us 4 bit Cinema Cameras?
  21. BM would have to license it, but Sigma could make dng act like Braw easily, a little bit of noise reduction processing can be left out, the dng can be put in a container with linear storage space, and meta file and what ever else. They could do dynamic compression on different parts of the image to save on one area and give more to others. You can do the multiple log thing. Put in the latest jpeg format with double the compression efficiency. They just have to put the work on.
  22. I'm a realist. Don't believe people that sell you value added that has nothing to do with costs. If it has 6k sensor, and can scale it at 30fps, it should be able to do 6k at 30fps. But who knows what's hobbled in the parts. If it can do 6k 30fps, windowing an extra wide and overclocking, it might get to 50fps. You think companies always give you the best? It you run the processing of compression the same rate, you get little extra heat, but a compression quality hit. But there isn't much of an cdng on camera to start with. 12 bits would be great. But we see certain cameras like th
